This time, I am suggesting something pertaining to Shadow Priests. At the moment, mana regeneration for them is horrid in PvP. With the nerfs to Divine Hymn and the DR on Blind/Fear, something must be given to Shadow Priests. Fade removing snares was a good start, but why was the healing from Dispersion removed? Also, Dispersion being a Shadow Priest's only REAL form of mana regen is unfair. Teams that face a Shadow Priest focus his/her partner, and wait for the Shadow Priest to go oom. Once oom, he/she must use Dispersion. After Dispersion drops, it's time to kill that Shadow Priest. I would like to suggest the following:
1: Make Prayer of Mending a Discipline spell.
2: Improved Shadowform, in addition to what the talent does now, also allows you to regenerate mana equal to 25% of Intellect.
3: Shadow Affinity, in addition to what the talent does now, causes your Shadow spell critical strikes to cause you to enter a Clearcasting state. While under the effects of Clearcasting, your next 2 damaging spells have their mana cost reduced by 60%.
4: Shadow Power, in addition to what the talent does now, causes your Shadow DoT critical strikes to allow you to place a Power Word: Shadow Shield on a friendly target, absorbing 2,000 damage + 80% spell power. Power Word: Shadow Shield does not cause the Weakened Soul debuff. 8% base mana.
I feel that these changes are very important to Shadow Priests. If the game designers feel the same way, I'd like to continue helping design these changes more deeply. If you need to reach me, do so as you please!

What do you all think? Maybe we can get enough to actually get these changes through :P
